Okay, so I had a really weird dream/sleep anomaly last night. I had gone to bed, fallen asleep and then had obviously started dreaming. In my dream,
I then went to bed, fell asleep and then started dreaming, but the dream I had (in the dream, if you're following what I mean lol) was more like an
OOB experience. I felt my body lift up and wind flowing through my hair, it was a beautiful and calming experience, I didn't feel afraid, also as
this was happening, I could see my hair and my clothing floating in this breeze, but it was almost like seeing it through a grey filter, much the same
way as you see things when in sleep paralysis mode.
I then woke up, (not really, just woke up from the dream within the dream) and went to tell my daughter about it, as we were talking, this strange
breeze came back, at which point my daughter asked me if we were actually dead! I had to say to her that I didn't know. A few more things happened
in the dream, e.g. we had to move to a different house, and that everything around us was so grey, dark and dirty, that we didn't want to be there,
and there was just a great sadness around us. Not long after that, I woke up for real, but couldn't throw off the memory of the floating and the
breeze in my dream within a dream. I really felt the cool breeze (and no, I didn't have any windows, AC or fans on in the room) it was just very
Now we've had a tough week in real life. We live in a block of flats and there are a couple of neighbours who are real pests and have drug and
alcohol problems, and one of my worst fears about living in the same building as these people came true in the early hours of Thursday morning. The
neighbour on the ground floor had fallen asleep with a cigarette and had set fire to her flat, but as my flat is the only one with a working smoke
alarm, it wasn't until after the fire had really taken hold, and the smoke had made it's way to the third floor that my alarm went off, we worked
out where the fire was and I phoned for the fire brigade. But we had to be evacuated from the building and it was all very stressful, and whilst our
flat has not sustained any damage, we're still trying to get rid of the smoke and associated soot, so I wonder if that's anything to do with it.
Also of course we and everyone else in the building (apart from the woman whose flat went on fire, she's in intensive care) are absolutely fine and
unharmed, but it was a terrifying experience and if it hadn't been for my smoke alarm it could have been a very different outcome, so I wonder if
this has anything to do with the strange dream of being in a calming breeze in the dream within the dream and then the breeze returning during the
false awakening, which made my daughter question if we were actually alive and of course the remainder of the dream about dirty, dark houses, as the
building is covered in soot.
Still it was a very weird and profound dream and I wonder if anyone has experienced anything similar or has any further explanation.
